hours, and then by late afternoon, it will drop back into the 60s. suns today is at 4:59. by dawn tomorrow under a cloudy sky, it will be in the low 50s. that is going to be the end of the mild weather for quite sometime as we get into the rest of the week. we may be even affected by what is left of ida. we will take a look at the latest on ida that was a hurricane but now is a tropical storm. still running on the slow side. live pictures of interstate 66 remaining slow for the last mile approaching the capital beltway. even on a good day it's bad there, but the new lane configuration getting into the loop. elsewhere, check and see how things are progressing around 395 as you head to and across the 14th street bridge. we have a little work zone there, but i believe it's behind the jersey wall, so i don't think it will have too much
impact. the outbound side of 395 looking good. right now the wilson bridge moving along nicely. barbara, back to you. >> thank you, jerry. now to the ft. hood shooting investigation. the fbi will look at the possibility between a link of the alleged shooter and two september 11th hijackers. kimberly suiters joints us live. >> they are urging the public not to jump to conclusions about major hasan's possible affiliation of the mosque, that also had contact with two 9/11 hijackers at the mosque back in 2001. the center is home to thousands of faithful muslims, one of the largest mosques on the east coast. the website says it's dedicated to the betterment of muslims and society at large. but now the latest from ft. hood. >> doctor and major nidal malik

coast are watching asropical storm ida approaches. people in mississippi are doing all they can to prepare for the approaching storm. overnight the storm weakens from a hurricane to a tropical storm. it could make landfall asarly as tomorrow. >> and check all the lines, and double-check all the lines and throughout the night evacuate, and there is a place called hurricane hole. >> so far no mandatory evacuations have been called. ida is a dangerous storm. check outs the damage it caused in el salvador. and there are about 7,000 people in shelters there, and many towns are still cut off. and officials have been unable to reach them. but it's downgraded to a tropical storm. and tom is here to see if we will see any of the remanence from the storm? >> in the next 48 hours we could have some of the tropical rains here. certainly a lot of it will have
rained out by the time it gets here. we will not have the flooding rains they had in elval salvado. and over the last two hours, we can squeeze three hours into 30 seconds. you can see the sunshine pouring down. and gorgeous foilage here in washington. and the sun is shining through the overcast, and the temperature right now at reagan national airport is 63 degrees, and for the record high today it's almost 80 degrees. we can get toasty in early november. and record height 79 set on the date back in 1994. now as we look at the temperatures around the region, actually 63 is one of the cool spots. annapolis, they have a wind off the cool waters of the bay.
it's only 58 there. but you go a few miles inland and it's well into the 60s across southern maryland, and in our eastern suburbs, and upper 60s now. and around the blue ridge and shenandoah valley. if you are right near the waters and getting a wind off the cooler waters, it's cooler. the eastern shore away from the waters, it's in the mid-60s there, and southeast virginia upper 60s. this morning they had a freeze out of the mountains in many locations, but in the 50s there. and over the last six hours in seeing some of the high clouds drifting in from the west, that's a lot of moisture that is beginning to build along the gulf coast from tropical storm ida. here it was 12 hours ago over the gulf of mexico. it's rapidly moving to the north. here is mobile, alabama, and it appearses the latest trek will take us near mobile. and the sustained wins are around 70. and then on this particular movement, it does appear it will diminish in intensity as it comes to the coast, but it will
have a lot of rain. they could get, 5, 6, 7 inches of rain out of that along the florida panhandle as it drifts east and slowly turns into a tropical depression, and then it will work its way up the atlantic seaboard and come along the carolina coast, and enough of the flow in off the atlantic to give us tropical moisture around our region as we get into late tuesday night and into wednesday. between now and then we have the high pressure off the atlantic seaboard, and the western flow around the high is bringing in the mild flow. and this front will come in and cool us down as the tropical moisture arrives. we will have chilly rains, it appears, by the time we get into wednesday. but for today, dry, enjoy another delightful afternoon, as high temperatures climb into the low 70s briefly, and it may only last a couple hours because of the short daylight hours and that low sun angle. by sunset, we will eventually get right back down into the 60s, and then quickly, by 9:00
it will be in the 60s, and then low 50s by dawn tomorrow and cloudiness around tonight. sunset today is at 4:59, and sunrise tomorrow is 6:05. and then tropical downpours, depending on close ida comes to the region, it could be 4 inches of rain, enough to cause brief flooding by wednesday afternoon. and then winds could gust up to 40 miles per hour especially along the atlantic seaboard. and that system pulls away and we dry out on wednesday evening, and then we have a gradual warm up on friday, saturday and sunday. that's how it looks, barbara.
>> good morning, jerry. >> just as soon as i said things are looking good, we have an accident. enter loop of the beltway, that's the traffic coming at us. an accident there with at least one travel lane closed, so those of you coming up from an undale on the enter loop up towards tysons corner will find things clogged indeed. and then at the wilson bridge, we are moving along nicely. no worries there. travel lanes are open. southeast corner is moving okay. northeast, no major hang ups. and there is roadwork as usual for this time of day. southbound and northbound, a little bit of delay if you are headed in that direction during midday. back to you, barbara. >> thank you, jerry. the redskins are now 2- 6 this season after losing to the atlanta falcons. and they are also now in last place in the east. >> with the redskins hovering on
empty, they came out flat once again. down to the falcon's 14-0 in the first quarter, they end up losing 31-17, falling to 2-6 on the year. the theme, ugly early continues to be very prevalent for the redskins this year. already down 7-0 in the first quarter, when they cannot hang on to the pass, and hill comes up with it. and this had pick six written all over it. hill with a convoy of blockers, he makes one final cut and is in for the 62-yard interception return for the touchdown. the falcons go up 14-0. and fast-forward to the fourth quarter. the falcons are up and adding more. turner takes over. terrible tackling by the redskins, and combined with great running by turner, and that equals a 58-yard touchdown run. that squashed any hopes the redskins had of winning the game. final score, 31-17.
and everybody still searching for answers. >> is it more aer or frustration at this point? what is it? >> you know, that's a good question. i really don't know. i don't know where you go from here. i guess just go up. that's the only place to go. >> it irritates me because the first half on offense could have been just like theecondhalf. and, you know, it wasn't. that's the reality of it. it wasn't. every game has been different. this one was horrible offensively in the first half. >> this is not anything to do with the front office. today, it's just us doing our job. go out there and block the man in front of you, and let jason throw the ball downfield, and we did not do that first half. >> and there is zero progress for the redskins. these guys not getting any better. with the brutal schedule ahead there appears to be no end in
sight. next up, the 6-1 broncos at fedex field. 11:21 is the time. still ahead on "news4 midday," why a former football star and dancing star is in trouble with the law. and criminals in our area targeting the elderly. is the answer to surviving the flu as simple as sleep? we will hear what doctors are saying. first a look at what is hot on nbcwashington.com.
